DIVAdirector(R) V5.1 -- Easy and Efficient Media Asset Management System
DIVAdirector(R) V5.1 is Front Porch Digital's newest update to its DIVAdireor(R) media asset management (MAM) system. It is a permission-based Web application that enables complete access to file-based content stored by DIVArchive(R) content storage management (CSM) systems. DIVAdirector V5.1 contains new features that make it even easier for any media organization with DIVArchive to manage its digital files, especially if that organization is using Front Porch Digital's new LYNXSM platform for moving, archiving, and publishing video to the cloud.
With cloud operations starting to dominate the industry, DIVAdirector 5.1 addresses LYNX-specific workflows and requirements such as site awareness, with a single DIVAdirector system showing the enterprise content view of assets stored in different archive systems -- local, networked, or cloud-based systems, or any combination thereof -- with integrated user permissions controlling access.

DIVArchive(R) V7.0 -- Now for a Broader Array of Applications
At NATEXPO, Front Porch Digital will showcase its DIVArchive(R) V7.0 content storage management (CSM) system. New features and capabilities make the system ideal for a broader array of applications. With its support for complex DPX packages, DIVArchive V7.0 enables video-like operations on film-carried content, making it desirable for film production and postproduction applications.
DIVArchive V7.0 is the first system of its kind to implement the new open Archive eXchange Format (AXF) technology developed by Front Porch Digital to protect, preserve, and facilitate the exchange of content among storage systems, today and for the future. This new open AXF implementation represents a step toward replacing outmoded legacy formats such as TAR with a truly open and storage-agnostic approach, ensuring long-term accessibility to the world's most valuable content.
The enhancements to DIVArchive extend its applicability to media operations of every kind -- broadcasters, educational and heritage institutions, the film industry, and government entities. With its unique ability to interconnect every element of operations from archive to production to transmission, DIVArchive V7.0 becomes the highly effective foundation on which to base cost-effective, seamless file-based workflows.

SAMMAsolo HD Video Migration Solution
Based on the patented, Emmy(R) Award-winning SAMMA(R) technology, the SAMMAsolo HD migration solution is the first of its kind to perform real-time, quality-controlled migration of content from HD videotape into a secure managed digital environment that supports preservation while facilitating access. With a fully internationalized user interface, SAMMAsolo can be customized for local languages, including Russian.
The SAMMAsolo HD migration solution meets a pressing need by enabling broadcasters, heritage institutions, and other enterprises to preserve and make use of their legacy assets. SAMMAsolo migration solutions combine hardware and software to move archive-quality content from videotape to multiple file formats in a single pass. Because SAMMAsolo automates repetitive steps and uses advanced signal analysis to evaluate the quality of the videotape and to monitor and document the migration itself, the work can be accomplished with minimal staff training and time. The process preserves source timecode and also associates indexing and technical metadata.
